To fill in the gaps, the research team used two forms of innovative technology to generate both short, highly accurate DNA sequences and sequences as long as 10,000 nucleotides, allowing the team to match the short sequences against the longer sequences for a more accurate composite sequence. These sequences totaled almost 15.3 billion nucleotides, or about 90 percent of the genome.
Consider also a composite sequence of two sequences of bounded linear operators {[T.sub.k] = [T.sub.2k][T.sub.1k]} defined by [T.sub.k] : Dom([T.sub.k]) [subset] X [right arrow] Im([T.sub.k]) [subset] X defined by [T.sub.k]x = [T.sub.2k]([T.sub.1k]x) = [T.sub.2k][T.sub.1k]x for any x [member of] Dom([T.sub.k]), where [T.sub.ik] : Dom([T.sub.ik]) [subset] X [right arrow] Im([T.sub.ik]) [subset] X; i = 1, 2, provided that Im([T.sub.1k])([not equal to] 0) [subset] Dom([T.sub.2k]) and Im([T.sub.2k]) [intersection] Dom([T.sub.1k + 1]) [not equal to] 0; for all k [member of] [N.sub.0].
A BLAST search against the complete GenBank database indicated that the composite sequence had a 99.6% (1040 out of 1044 bp) match with the published NADH2 sequence for a sperm whale (Physeter catodon) (Arnason et al., 2000: GenBank accession NC002503).
The composite sequence of sedimentary rock on the Earth, supposedly deposited by the Noachian Flood, approaches 100 miles thick.
Mori's team, using previously published data from Blattner's group, actually produced a composite sequence of more than one E.
The species affiliation of each strain is the same whether the phylogeny is based on the composite sequence (fig.
T he sequence stratigraphic framework for Tobra and Dandot Formations correspond one second order composite sequence with time span of 13.6 Ma.
The deduced amino acid composition of the composite Dpfp1 sequence, without signal peptide sequence agrees well with that of native Dpfp1 (Table I), suggesting that the composite sequence described above is representative of Dpfp1 mRNAs present in zebra mussel foot tissue.
The sequence stratigraphic framework correspond one second order composite sequence with time span of 25 Ma.
Several techniques (X-ray, magnetic susceptibility, color reflectance) allow detailed between-hole correlation and the construction of continuous composite sequences from multiple holes drilled at the same site, such as during Leg 138 in the equatorial Pacific.
On the basis of present and previous biostratigraphic work the assigned stages are; Induan and Olenekion to Mianwali Formation corresponds two second order composite sequences with time span of 5.1 Ma.
